Pursuit of Justice: the trial of John Demjanjuk comprises four one hour lessons. The primary aim of the suite of lessons is to learn about the family of Helene Seligmann (later Neuhaus) and to explore the concept of justice in order to understand the trial of John Demjanjuk. The four lessons chart the lives and fate of Helene and her family during the Holocaust and the subsequent trial of John Demjanjuk over 65 years later.
Employing the trial of John Demjanjuk as a case study, this third lesson enables students to build on their previous explorations of justice by considering how this concept is sought in the real world.
